What are the 2 Sets of Holes on Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch 87438 and How Does the DoubleDown Install

Question:

A few questions....there are 2 holes on my Hitch so which one does the bolt go through to secure the bike rack? Secondly, i dont see how the frail looking pin placed on top of the bolt does anything to hold the bolt in place. Shouldnt the bolt of a hole through which the pin would slide through? Draw-Tite part #75531

Expert Reply:

The Draw-Tite trailer hitch you have, # 75531, is set up to accept a j-bolt anti-rattle lock, # 63201. That is why there are that front and rear set of holes. The Yakima bike rack, # Y02424, secures through the larger set of holes (the set closer to the vehicle).

This rack comes with a threaded hitch pin that you tighten down. This also acts as an anti-rattle device. The clip that goes through the other end is just a fail safe. The pin is really held in place because it is threaded in. But, on a smooth, non-threaded pin, the clip does secure the hitch pin and does not allow it to pull out. I have linked the instructions and a video on this bike rack for you.
